I have two date fields that I need my end users to see but not modify. How can I achieve this in the best manner? I am not very versed in code so any detailed ideas you can provide would be great!
To edit the form web part use the ribbon of the Tasks Lists or SharePoint Designer
By default there isn't a way to make a field read only if users have permission to modify the list.
There are a few code options however but if you want to avoid that path then the only solution I can think of is running two task lists and create the read only fields as a lookup from one list to the other.
